PSA: Stolen Fic  
I just found out about a site -- http://www.ebooks-tree.com/ -- that uses bots to harvest fic from (at least) AO3. Nine of my fic are up there without my permission. That's bad enough. But the site is a pay site - apparently requiring a credit card to even register. Note: I think it would be a very bad idea to give them this information! Don't be enticed by the downloads/reviews/hits stats that are displayed -- these numbers seem to be faked.

I urge any fic authors to go and see if your stuff has been illegally posted. And then go read these blog posts with some info on how to deal with this.
